Three Bars to Bring Your First Date

With a vast selection of premium cocktails all concocted meticulously by the bar chefs, your potential partner will be smiling from rim to rim. Or test your compatibility by creating your own cocktails. This could be a good gauge to see if your relationship will turn sweet or sour. Housed in a classic heritage building, the bar offers a cosy ambiance, away from prying eyes.
31 Scotts Rd., 6836-9185. Open daily 5pm-1am.

Wild Oats
Situated high on Mt. Sophia and housed in an old colonial building, Wild Oats is something of a love-birds’ secret for its intimate ambiance. Its alfresco deck is a favorite nesting ground for couples with its plush rattan chairs and stout tables. Surrounded by lush greenery and soothing music, the bar is perfect for those get-to-know sessions. Couples have reportedly met and married here.
11 Upper Wilkie Rd., 6336-5413. Open Tue-Thu 6pm-midnight; Fri-Sun 6pm-1am.

Mr Punch Wine Bar
For the young at heart, Mr Punch Wine Bar offers a delightfully different experience thanks to its location on the rooftop of the Mint Museum of Toys. Start your dating itinerary with a walk through five different storeys in the museum and embark on a nostalgic trip with over 50,000 toys from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. Then head up to the cozy bar with your partner and indulge in private time together with their selection of cocktails and wine while admiring the vintage collection of posters and memorabilia adorning the walls.
Mint Museum of Toys, 26 Seah St., 6334-5155. Open Mon-Thu 4pm-midnight; Fri-Sat, eve of public holiday 4pm-2am.
